Such a great song. I like the lyrics , the music and the video. I still listen to this quite often.

It has all the ingredients of the quintessential Minneapolis Sound.

This is by far one of my all time favorite Jody Watley songs.

Jody has a greatest hits CD. It was released in 1996 and there are 13 tracks including Still a thrill and Looking for a new love. Worth buying.

I have it, it´s great ....and good to have even though I own most of her albums anyway.

eek

Really? She wrote it?

I think the songs he wrote and composed for Jody are better than the songs he wrote for himself.

fro Yeah, it's so MPLS! I still love the pre-chorus sections to this day. She sounds so cool in that lower register too! This and "Don't You Want Me" were my favorite singles if I recall.

YES ! That´s another favorite of mine. The video is nice, too, even though it looks a bit more dated than Still A Thrill, which I find almost timeless.

In my opinion, Jody owns this song and no other artist could come close but....do you think it would have been an even bigger hit and more wellknown if it had been released by Grace Jones?

I mean, almost all of my friends know who Grace Jones is, but I barely have any friends who even remember Jody Watley, as sad as that is.

I´m a big fan since her debut solo album.

It's funny you should ask. I never thought about had GJ did it, if or not it'd be a hit. It probably would've. However, I'm glad JW did it. It was everything different from her years with Shalamar. Also, I don't think a video would've been seen as what we got from JW.

Yeah, if anybody else could have pulled it off other than Jody, it could have been Grace.

I agree! It also didn't hurt that they were a "secret" married couple.
